As aired at CNN on Wednesday early morning, President Obama made his acceptance speech in front of around 70,000 supporters, and was later joined by his wife, Michelle Obama and their children. He thanked his family, his running mate Joe Biden, and all the volunteers during the entire election campaign.

However, many televiewers noticed an extraordinary scene behind the president, as an unknown woman was seen having a small American flag in her hair and was flying above her head. She was dubbed as the ‘Flag Head‘ or ‘Hair Flag‘ lady at Twitter, and users tweet with the hashtags #Flaghead and #Hairflag.

Apparently, mixed reactions poured at the micro-blogging site as the woman moves her head sideways causing her “hair flag” to be noticeable not only to TV viewers but also to those sitting near her. Some of them, including media people, cannot help but voiced out their reactions on Twitter, as shown below.

“I want the guy in the grey sweatshirt to pull it out of her head..I know it’s bugging him too. I can’t focus!!! I want to pull that flag out!!!! Ahhhhh” Fox Sports Broadcaster Erin Andrews (@ErinAndrews) tweeted.

“Hair flag lady is the real star of this speech” Buzzfeed reporter Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) tweeted. Hollywood actress Rashida Jones also called it ‘distracting’ on her Twitter account.
